I was able to hit the water solo today since my son had a birthday party today. I was able to go fishing alone and not feel guilty! It has been a few weeks since I have had a normal outing. A few weeks ago we went out to Seneca Lake for the Lake Trout Derby. That was a complete bust. We also have had family boat outings, and I began scouting the Mohawk River. It is still loaded with debris, and the current is fast.
So long story short I had been looking forward today. Surprisingly the lake had maybe had two other boats fishing when I got out on the water at 5:45 AM.
The morning started out great, my first fish was a 19″ in Largemouth caught on a night crawler. I caught several other “keeper” bass too.

General Overview: The bite was great. I found a lot of activity on sonar and the end of my line at 13 feet of water. The weed line is growing in at the depth. So I positioned the boat in about 16 feet of water and trolled\drifted along the weed lines. It was a truly a multi-species day. I lost a Pike, due to a poor hook set.
